Raiders RB Marcel Reece (quadricep, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7.

Lions RB Theo Riddick (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 7. Reggie Bush is back in the fold, so Riddick wasn’t going to be much of a fantasy factor even if he did play.

Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 7. Stacy will play, but his role is unclear after he lost touches to Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason in Week 6. This is turning into a messy RBBC.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 7. Stewart is expected to start in a nice matchup against the Packers. In 11 games that Stewart played without DeAngelo Williams from 2009 to 2010, he averaged over 100 total yards, and provided decent production in his starting stint earlier this season. Consider him a RB3/flex type since the Panther running game isn’t exactly firing on all cylinders.

Browns RB Ben Tate (finger, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 7. N o worries here.

Saints RB Pierre Thomas (illness, probable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 7. Thomas fell ill this week, but should be back in the mix for touches against the Lions.

Broncos RB Juwan Thompson (knee, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 7. Thompson should be fine to serve as Ronnie Hillman’s backup in Week 7.

Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (concussion, questionable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. Benjamin returned to Week 6’s game against the Bengals after taking a big hit from Vontaze Burfict. He apparently showed up with a headache early in the week and is now going through the league’s concussion protocol. HC Ron Rivera says he was pleased with how Benjamin worked on Friday and that the wideout “practiced well” and “looked sharp.” He still has to be cleared by an independent doctor, but that appears to be the final step towards playing in Week 7. The Panthers play early on Sunday, but we should know his status by Saturday. His absence would be a downgrade for Cam Newton and an upgrade for Greg Olsen and Jerricho Cotchery.
